Actually, I almost did pass her up.
But Hubby said to get it.
My Grandma gave me one soon after Hubby and I were married. A few years later (and needing something that would sew heavier fabric) someone talked me out of it for $50 and I've always regretted it.
Blondie and I were wandering through Sandy Antique Mall looking for a dresser or chest of drawers for Prion's room and I saw this beauty sitting in the cabinet.
|She's so pretty and in such good shape! There were only a few spots of wear on the flip down arm. The decals are all in perfect shape.|
|And she came with a carry case in great shape, too. The case doesn't even smell!|
|Look at all the feet that were in the attachments box! Even a few original needles.|
|Her only scar is a chip from the bottom of the socket.|
The owner saw her and said, "Oh, we love Featherweights!"
So do I.
The woman 'checking her in' looked up the serial number and said she was built sometime between 1950 and 1951. Fantastic shape for a 60+ year old machine.
I can hardly wait 2 weeks to give her a spin on my next quilt block.
And I'll be thinking of my Grandma and smiling the whole time I'm sewing.
